The intro to The Expanse reminds me to the intro of Game of Thrones
Intro of The Expanse
Intro of Game of Thrones
Both intros show important places, buildings "growing" and none of the main characters directly. Maybe it's just me, but it seems to me that The Expanse intro was inspired by the one from Game of Thrones. Has this ever been addressed and confirmed / denied by somebody involved in Expanse?
While this is not conclusive evidence the two shows shared 43 people in the visual effects department. However, some worked on Game of Thrones first but others worked on The Expanse first. I also don't know what specific parts of the show the people worked, and none seem to have been around at the start of Game of Thrones in 2011.
I think it is more likely that the VFX company they worked for worked on both shows. These companies and/or people probably shared design elements and processes and brought elements from the Game of Thrones intro to The Expanse. It's kind of a stretch but it is a connection...
